Mapping a Domain to a Droplet
I’ve recently started learning about servers etc and looking to host my own code/websites etc.
I’ve bought a domain and I have changed the Name Servers to Digital Ocean.
When I do the WhoIs lookup for my domain it does state the name servers as
I’ve then gone ahead and created a droplet with a CentOS image.
I’d like to know how I then go about mapping my domain name to the droplet i’ve created?
What else do I need to do? I’ve not got a site or anything running on the droplet yet. but I’d like to know how to either go about getting this done or what do I need to?
I’m looking to learn Node.js along with learning about servers etc. So I’ll be looking to host a Node.js Express site on the server to start.
Thanks for you time.
